The lowest ge-force series card you should look at would be the 8 series. ie 8600 and 8800 are both good choices

It should only be around 10 bucks now, you should be able to find it at any gamestop.

Not at my gamestops they dont carry PC games any other suggestions.

The mid range 9 series are good, i bought my 9600GT for $200 aussie and they are now $120. I can play crysis on high with shadows on medium.

to find your graphics card, right click 'my computer' and select 'properties.'

From there, go into the device manager. Click the drop down layer titled 'display adapters.'

Post what display adapter is listed. That is your video card.

Anyways, $150 or less will get you a great video card that will be capable of running most games on high (You can get one used for MUCH LESS at that.) With a video card in that price range, your experience can only really be hampered by whether or not your processor is up to par with a game's specs. Your processor isn't great... and it might find difficulties with newer games, but you should be GREAT with any slightly older games, or source games.

Installing a Video Card is actually really easy. I did it my first time with a little printed out guide from some website, which turned out to be more than was necessary. You just have to uninstall the old video drivers, turn off the computer, open it up, and it pops in to the PCI express X-16 slot on your Mother Board like an N64 Cartridge. Then you just turn on your computer and pop in the driver disc, and you're done.

If you're not looking to spend a bunch of money on upgrading, and you just want to be able to play older stuff, and newer games on medium settings, I'd recommend this: http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-256-P2-N751-TR-e-GeForce-PCI-Express-Graphics/dp/B000PB2OBW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1249450091&sr=8-1

40 bucks used on Amazon, and it'll run most (non open world) games on medium settings, and older games will run on High. You'd be able to play Left 4 Dead, for example, with all settings on high, and, if you really want to, a little bit of Anti-Aliasing. Again, that might depend a bit on your processor, which I don't know a whole lot about.

So yeah, there you go. The only other thing to make sure of is that you have a Mother Board with a PCI express X16 slot... which, unless your computer is REALLY OLD, you do.

Power supply might be an issue, but it shouldn't be. A mid-range card like the 9600 GT isn't much of a power hog.

Good luck!
